Discover Burien’s Box Makerspace – a creative studio and workspace in Downtown Burien – is open for business, creatives, artisans, makers, students and more to make cool stuff with high tech.
First opened in October 2021, this is a place where the community can come to learn and make their creative projects come to life.
The Box also caters to small and micro businesses that are looking to do small production runs, craft custom items, create branded merchandise and more.
A Grand Opening celebration will be held on Wednesday, Mar. 16, 2022 from 5-7 p.m.

The Box offers in- house certification and orientations for the larger, more complex machines every week and there is a growing list of class offerings like “Making A Cribbage Board” and “Photo Basics for The Internet.” Class sizes are kept small and are mostly geared toward adults.
